Mumbai, June 27 (): A seventeen-year old pizza delivery boy hit a twenty-five year old woman and tried to molest her when she was alone at her residence in Mumbai. The young woman, who was living with her aunt, placed an order for pizza with the nearby Pizza Port in the area on Tuesday.
The boy who came to deliver the pizzas at 8.00pm saw the girl being alone in the house. He after ten minutes returned back and rang the bell under the pretext that he forgot to give the sauce and chilli flakes. When the woman opened the door, the boy barged into the house and dragged the woman to the kitchen with an intention to molest her.
He also attacked the woman in her wrist with the kitchen knife after which she screamed and hit him with a grinding stone. Hearing the woman’s screams, the neighbours came running after which the boy ran away. The woman was then taken to a nearby hospital where her condition is said to be stable.
The victim, an engineer who hails from Wardha has come to Mumbai to look for a job and was staying with her aunt in government quarters in Annie Besant Road. After fleeing from the scene the accused went to his employer and said that he wanted leave due to some emergency. Police arrested the boy after inquiring his address from the Pizza Port owner in Worli Koliwada.
The owner of the shop said that the boy was a school drop-out and was employed just 20 days back. He said that as all the staff were engaged he had to send the boy to deliver the pizza. The teenager was booked for attempt to rape and murder under the Indian Penal Code. The owner of the shop said that he had just recently set up the shop after taking a loan and the boy’s malicious behaviour has now ruined his career.
